Midlands Carriagedriving

Shake off those cobwebs and get your entry in!

10 Mar 2020

Report by Wendy Nix

Midlands Carriagedriving (MC) is very pleased to announce that all is ready for its first event of the 2021 season, a One-Day Event at Anslow, Derbyshire, on Sunday 11 April.

The ODE will be immediately preceded by a supervised Practice Day on the Saturday, with access to a dressage arena, course of cones and obstacles.

Anslow ODE is an excellent opportunity to dust off those cobwebs and get going again after last year’s stop-start-stop season and all Covid-19 precautions will be in place.

Entries for both the Practice Day and ODE close 25 March; anyone wishing to take advantage of the facilities on 10 April is asked to contact the organiser, Paul Hart (07779 922506), before the day.
